The move will come in January next year, six years after Richard joined Leeds Met and academic PR for the first time, following work in journalism and the technology sector of PR, including successful freelance work.
Richard will be part of a small team of two, reducing his academic work load to a part time position for the ability to take on new projects which will contribute to his choice to make a change to his working career.
The two year old, CIPR-approved course at Gloucestershire offers the opportunity for development as a small course consisting of 25 at present, and a new location for Richard to take his skills he has distributed at Leeds Met.
Although he does not describe himself as a risk-taker, he admits to having taken risks previously which paid off and feel they will do again this time.
The move is something Richard has been considering for some time, and now feels the right opportunity has come along to move somewhere closer to home and with definite development potential.
